The Son of God by Karl Adam( Book )

15 editions published between 1934 and 1962 in English and Undetermined and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We must either give our consent to the historical existence of the whole Christ, the Christ of the miracles, or openly in the face of all the historical evidence venture the assertion that the Christ of the Gospels never existed." (Ch. 1) The author's point, that the so-called "historical" Christ and the Christ of faith are impossible to separate, is amply documented in these pages. But this is not simply a work of historical apologetics; it is also spiritual writing of the highest quality by a man of great faith

My system : 21st century edition by Aron Nimzowitsch( Book )

9 editions published between 1930 and 2003 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, an English-speaking audience can ap-preciate the true nature of this famous, classic chess book as this brand-new translation recreates the authors origi-nal intention. Not to have read My System is regarded as a shocking gap in a chess players education, but English speakers had only poor translations that toned down or even deleted many passages because the translators feared Nimzowitschs famous biting wit would be controversial. Nimzowitschs ideas about how to play better chess have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking. It is commonly agreed that almost every chess master in the world has studied Nimzowitschs work. This is the first new English translation in decades. This is the first new English translation in decades and, unlike previous translations, does not censor or dilute the authors writing

How not to play chess by Evg. A Znosko-Borovskiĭ( Book )

10 editions published between 1931 and 1947 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginners and even fairly advanced players agree on one thing: analyzing the strength or weakness of a position (material being equal) is the hardest part of chess to learn. It is also one of the hardest elements to teach, and there are some who claim it is unteachable. But this wonderfully lucid book, written by one of the outstanding chess expositors of the twentieth century, presents the basis of analysis in such a disarmingly simple way that even the most casual player will be able to improve his game immensely. Sticking to a few well-chosen examples and explaining every step along the way, the author shows you how to avoid playing a hit-or-miss game, from move to move, and instead develop general plans of action based on positional analysis: weak and strong squares, the notion of controlling a square, how to seize control of open lines, weak points in the pawn structure, and other aspects of analysis. He includes as well a number of tips (not often found in books for beginners and average players) that the reader would do well to commit to memory: such hints as?Never omit to blockade an enemy passed pawn,? and?Do not be content with attacking an existing weakness; always seek to create others.? Throughout the book he defines and illustrates typical chess mistakes, and anyone reading his book carefully will learn in a few hours what he might otherwise have spent years to attain. For this revised edition, the author added 20 problems from master games on which the reader can test his understanding of the principles found in the text
